Good Deeds Challenge, Year 2 Week 16

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsDuring my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on  The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.

This week I’ve been doing the following;

August 3rd – Dropped around to visit my parents and helped my Mum with a lesson on copy and paste on the computer. I love the fact that she keeps trying to learn new technical stuff. The August online versions of the two magazine I write reviews for went up today and I sent out e-mails and tweets to all the featured authors. Here’s a link to my post

August 4th – Today I’ve written a long over-due letter to an Aunt. I’ve picked up litter and I’ve helped out another friend with a phone number. Am reading Lost Souls by Penny de Byl

August 5th – Made sure I wished a friend’s son good luck with his driving test today.

August 6th – Took my son and a friend to the park to play cricket and picked up litter. Checked several friends had remembered we are going out for a meal tonight. Good deeds received: Being picked up tonight, so I don’t have to drive.

August 7th – Sent a return letter to the above aunt booking us in for a visit in September, she likes to keep with tradition and use pen and paper to communicate mostly, although she has a new laptop which she’s having trouble getting used to, so hopefully the kids can give her a hand if we can’t help her.

August 8th – Agreed to read and review a book by Gina Henning that is due out next week, although my review won’t be ready that quickly. Off out for tea with friends this afternoon. Taking them books to read.

August 9th – Sent off my review for Lost Souls. Out to tea at the in-laws this afternoon. Picked up litter. Began reading the second book in the Spirit Warriors series by Della Connor. Have been drafting up more Romancing September posts. Received my windfall of Amazon vouchers and have already purchased Bending the Boyne by J.S Dunn, a historical book about Ireland that I’ve been wanting to read for a while.

    • Hi June, it’s a challenge I set myself and I really enjoy finding good deeds to do, it does stop a lot of procrastinating and makes me a better person too. One of my biggest personal challenges is picking up litter in public, but once I pick up the first piece the next is easier, sometimes I have to say “Ok the 3rd piece I see I’ll pick up and go from there”, picking up litter should not have a social stigma but I’m afraid it often does.


  1. Another great week Rosie, and I love the way you embrace all forms of communication, from the old (traditional hand written letter!) to sharing with us here and elsewhere online. I think were a privileged generation to currently still have feet in both camps. What a wonderful week of socialising you had:-) Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday, and I wish you another fun filled, GD filled week…Hugs, Harula xxx
